No, you don't need a lawyer, and won't go to jail. Get your license if you can before then. Go, and explain to the judge what happened. There's a good chance the judge may even dismiss the case. Good luck.

Q: Cited with warning and citation for $150 with court date next month am I going to jail for this?

1 Answer | Asked in Criminal Law, Traffic Tickets, Gov & Administrative Law and Municipal Law for Oklahoma on
Answered on Nov 14, 2017

I don't understand what you got the ticket for. A "Warning" ticket doesn't require a fine, or court date. Take a good close look at the ticket, and ask your question again.

Sorry I can't help more.

Q: why and how does the government and defendants enter into pleas bargain?

1 Answer | Asked in Business Law, Gov & Administrative Law and Criminal Law for Florida on
Answered on Nov 9, 2017

Why, it makes sense for both sides to avoid a lengthy expensive trial.

How, the parties come to a mutual agreement. ie: neither side is forced to agree and they will agree voluntarily.

Hope this helps, good luck,

Hard to say with the limited information you have given us.

Q: What should i do with a car that is owned by a friend who has gone to prison for 2 and a half years?

1 Answer | Asked in Consumer Law, Traffic Tickets and Gov & Administrative Law for California on
Answered on Oct 18, 2017

So many questions. If he is your friend, why are you charging him for storage? If you are storing the car, why is it parked on the street? Why are you charging for parking a car on the street?

If you have an agreement for compensation for storage, and you are actually storing the car, then you need to look to the person who agreed to pay you for your compensation. If that person is in prison, you can ask him how he intends to pay. If he does not intend to pay you, you can leave...

Q: I want to sue the city hall due of a wrong information provide to me that are bring me a lot loss.

1 Answer | Asked in Civil Litigation, Personal Injury, Gov & Administrative Law and Civil Rights for Florida on
Answered on Oct 16, 2017

This appears to be a duplicate question. You need to go a sit down with an attorney in your area. There is absolutely no way for an attorney to help you via this online forum. If you have a case, a lawyer will need to file the case in the Boca Raton area or the county where the property is located. Your best bet is to have an attorney within that location to handle the case.

Answered on Oct 11, 2017

No way to say for sure without being able to review the ordinance and the paperwork you have received.

You need to hire an attorney to assist you as the fine is likely supported by the authority of the city as a governmental body.

1 Answer | Asked in Employment Law, Gov & Administrative Law and Government Contracts for New York on
Answered on Oct 9, 2017

This is a very broad question that can be answered in many ways, but broadly in New York there is legislation (the Taylor Law) that sets up a system of procedures and protections for public sector employers and employees. Under this system, employees have to serve a probationary period after they are hired, but after that probationary period, most employees are protected by "just cause" job protections. That is, the employer must have an objectively good reason to terminate an employee, which...

Q: I am a public female citizen/civilian and was sexually harassed at my home by a county fireman. What should I do?

1 Answer | Asked in Sexual Harassment, Civil Rights and Gov & Administrative Law for California on
Answered on Oct 7, 2017

Make a complaint to the Fire Dept. Request a Protective Order if you feel unsafe, since he knows your address. I am not certain that two incidents of him making a pass at you will constitute sexual harassment. You said no. He left. Get a consultation with a sexual harassment attorney for a more complete analysis.
